Cost Benefits/Economics of NDT

I need to find information on cost benefits of NDT. I have to sell NDT inspections as cost effective and benficial inspections. The party that I must convince are not experts in NDT and are only interested in the bottom line savings. They would like to see dollars saved. I am looking for any resourses that would give me this information.
Thanks for your help.

Dear Rick

I have utilized information contained in articles such
as:
"EQUIPMENT INTEGRITY INSPECTIONS ESSENTIAL TO RISK MANAGEMENT"
BY Helmut Thielsch & Florence Cone. CSNDT Journal Vol.-17, No.6 NOV?DEC 1996; and
"A COST OF QUALITY: THREE FINANCIAL METHODS FOR MAKING INSPECTION DECISIONS"
ASNT Materials Evaluation.

They worked for me. Good Luck.

John

Hello,

I took a short course called NDT in the Quality
Hierarchy of ISO, TQM and SPC. It contained a good
deal of the outlining process of justification of
NDE/NDT from and economics basis.

The instructor was Emmanuel Papadakis, andthe course
took place at the 1998 fall conference in Nashville.
I don't have his business card, but perhaps you could
contact ASNT (they sponsored the course) for further
info.
